Nipples, 1994

Originally conceived as a response to moth, in this version, the breasts are painted realistically to enhance the appearance of superficial eroticism and objectification. Conversely, by placing one cast wax breast above the other, they are truly objectified. Their relationship with their original roll – as part of a human – has been disrupted, and they have become something arbitrary and abstract. The cross aperture references Christian iconography – an incapacitated and wounded, or dead person with [parts of] their physical body presented for public display.
